BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox are back in first place after a 15-inning win that began in July and ended in August.
Stephen Drew finally got the decisive hit that lifted Boston to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners in a game that ended 14 minutes after midnight on Thursday.
All it took was 5 hours, 3 minutes.
“It’s just huge to get a win out of that game,” Drew said. “Back and forth, their bullpen’s doing well, our bullpen’s doing well. We made some key plays that kept us in it.”
